Drake Throws Opening Pitch at Cleveland Indians Game [Video]

Young Money’s own Drake recently threw the first opening pitch at the Cleveland Indians game and also did a pre interview where he shares with everyone that he used to play baseball when he was younger.

We can all bet his pitch looked better than Wizards’ John Wall, who’s pitch fell way short of the base.

Fan Dies After Fall At Texas Rangers Game

It’s never good to report such sad news in the world of sports but a fan has died after falling over the outfield railing and landing on the concrete behind the out-of-town scoreboard at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

According to Rumors and Rants,

A man, fell from the stands during the second inning of Thursday’s matchup between the Oakland A’s and Texas Rangers. The fan, wearing a blue Rangers cap and white Rangers shirt, was sitting in the front row of the bleachers and was apparently yelling at Rangers left fielder Josh Hamilton to toss him a foul ball hit by Conor Jackson. Hamilton flipped the ball in his direction and the fan leaned over, caught the ball and fell in between in the gap between the railing and the back of the scoreboard in left field.

Ronnie Hargis, a 50-year-old from Hawley, Texas was sitting next to the fan who fell. He had this to say about the incident: “I tried to grab him, but I couldn’t. I tried to slow him down a little bit. He went straight down.”

The fan who died was said to be a fire fighter. The players were informed after the game of what had happened while the Rangers closed their clubhouse from all media outlets.

Prayers go out to the family.
